Age Embracing™

by b-glowing BEAUTY

This is a place for women who have lived life—women with stories.

For risk-takers, rule-breakers, and those who believe beauty has no age limit. For women who refuse to be told what to wear and how to behave. For anyone not afraid to let themselves GLOW.

There are no rules here—only tips, tricks, and product picks to help you embrace your unique beauty. It’s all about finding what suits you, your personality and your sense of style. You’re the one deciding. We’re just here to help.


b-glowing BEAUTY founder Lisa King's Age Embracing story

Lisa’s journey

“I felt ignored by the beauty industry—like my wants, needs, and desires weren’t being addressed. I knew if I was frustrated by the limited makeup options for mature women, other women must be, too.” – Lisa, b-glowing founder.

Beauty that breaks ALL the rules

Forget all the false makeup rules you’ve been fed—the Illuminate + Shine™ Palette is here to break them. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your personal style because society says “older women” don’t look good in shimmer. Personally, we don’t believe there’s an age limit on a dramatic look—it’s your skin that changes as you age, not your love for makeup. That’s why we’ve made our shadows bold, rich, and packed with the vibrant color you crave.

This isn’t about looking younger, either. It’s about the freedom to express yourself exactly how you choose. It’s about feeling like your very best self. It’s not about turning back the clock, it’s about confidently going forward.

Perfect look for women of color

Get the look: Rococo + Vintage

Date night? Girls’ night? Hitting up a party? Step into the spotlight with makeup that’s as dazzling as you are.

Created with the Illuminate + Shine palette™, this shimmery look is glam enough for special occasions, but understated enough for everyday wear. And because we believe women over 40 absolutely can (and should!) wear shimmer, this look works for women of ALL ages. It's your time to shine!

Pro tip:
For extra intensity and shimmer, apply wet.

Apply your shadow with a brush, then gently press it further into skin with your fingertips. The warmth will melt the shadow into your skin for an ultra-seamless look.

Made to flatter

As we age, our skin changes. That’s just a fact of life. But the idea that we can’t pull off a dramatic eye look post-40? That’s pure fiction. It all comes down to finding the right techniques and products for a fresh, cake-free look—which is where the Illuminate + Shine™ Palette comes in. Made with mature skin in mind, Our Age Embracing™ formulas deliver vibrant, flawless color without creasing, cracking, or highlighting crepey-ness.

How to use highlighter for mature skin

Let yourself GLOW

We may have abandoned the beauty trends of decades past (teased bangs, frosted lipstick... how did we ever think you were chic?) but we’ll never NOT want luminous, lit-from-within skin. We believe you should let yourself glow at every age, which is why we’ve included a radiance-boosting highlighter in the Illuminate + Shine™ Palette. The long-lasting cream has just the right amount of shimmer without being sparkly, blending like a dream to give your complexion a natural-looking glow that never cakes or creases. Swipe on cheekbones, browbones, cupid bow's and the inner corners of the eyes to add a gorgeous light to skin.

Rococo is the perfect antique gold eyeshadow for dark skin

Get the look: Vintage + Rococo

Gold and brown go beautifully together, and make for an easy-yet-impactful eye look. Here, we mixed Vintage and Rococo for a sultry smoky eye that looks stunning on all skin tones.

Perfect look for mature women, Jamie Lee Curtis-approved!

The Illuminate + Shine Palette is Jamie Lee Curtis-approved!

No big deal or anything, but the legendary Jamie Lee Curtis recently rocked our Illuminate + Shine Palette ™ on set! We can’t think of anyone who embodies the spirit of Age Embracing™ beauty better than her, either. Like us, Jamie is disappointed that society uses the term “anti” to talk about aging. She’s refreshingly real when it comes to issues like ageism, and she shares our passion for challenging outdated ideas about what makes a woman beautiful. Jamie is breaking rules, and proving that beauty is not a number. Makeup by Camille Clark @camillemarieclark.
